Basic Physician Trainee Year 2

We are inviting eligible doctors to apply for a Basic Physician contract with RMH

Commencing at BPT2 in Training Year 2025 and moving to a BPT3 in Training Year 2026.

The Royal Melbourne is one of Victoria’s largest hospitals providing a comprehensive range of health services including acute, sub-acute, general, and specialist medical services throughout inpatient and community-based facilities. We are also a proud part of the world-renowned Melbourne Biomedical Precinct, working in collaboration to advance research for continuous improvement of clinical care.

Your Opportunity

RMH are inviting doctors who will have completed 12 months of accredited physician's training by February 2025 to apply to join or continue at RMH as a second-year trainee. RMH offer a structured training program designed around maximising you’re training and education prior to exams and ensuring you have a breadth of experience in both General and Specialty Medicine prior to... commencing advanced training.

The Royal Melbourne Hospital is part of the Greater Western Basic Physician Training Consortium (GWC). The objectives of the GWC are to improve, and make more equitable, the standard of basic physician training across all of its member health services - and for this to be reflected in the quality and adequacy of the basic physician trainee workforce in the GWC.

RMH trainees each rotate to one of our rural partners for at least two separate rotations over the course of two years. In addition to the objectives of the GWC by way of providing workforce to our rural counterparts, it is our belief that the rotations provide you an experience unique to rural health services which you would not receive by remaining at RMH for the entirety of your training. It is an expectation and condition of application that if you are asked to rotate to one of our rural partners, you do so.
